Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy Versus Ureteroscopy for Management of Pediatric Nephrolithiasis in Upper Tract Urinary Stones: Multi-Institutional Outcomes of Efficacy and Morbidity

As the incidence of pediatric nephrolithiasis rises, understanding the efficacy and morbidity of surgical treatment options is critical. Currently, there is limited comparative data assessing shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) and ureteroscopy (URS) outcomes in children.

Stoller, Thomas Chi, Pankaj Kapahi Elevated uric acid (UA) is a key risk factor for many disorders, including metabolic syndrome, gout and kidney stones. Despite frequent occurrence of these disorders, the genetic pathways influencing UA metabolism and the association with disease remain poorly understood. In humans, elevated UA le vels resulted from the loss of the of the urate oxidase (Uro) gene around...

Conclusion Children on KDT have low normal BMD which may decrease further during KDT. For this reason monitoring of BMD is crucial, as is monitoring of kidney stones and hypercalciuria. Intravenous bisphosphonate therapy may have a positive effect, when other therapies have failed.
